The D-pad mod is not that hard to do and I'd recommend giving it a go as the shells only cost like $15-20.

Hm. That's more reasonable then I was expecting. I might have to look into this.

My Satisfye Gaming Grip finally came in today (waited since the summer with the crowd funding thing), and it's amazing. It's big as hell but good lord it improves the ergonomics of the handheld Switch by leaps and bounds. I legitimately feel like I'm playing with a regular controller and my hands will not go into complete pain if I'm playing Hollow Knight or any other platformers in handheld mode. I highly recommend it to anyone else who tends to get sore hands when playing in handheld mode. Pics below:

Great piece of kit. Got it myself. Best grip there is I can say. Did you just get the grip or the Elite bundle?

Just the grip. I was thinking about the Elite bundle but that carrying case is just sooooooooooo big. There's like almost no point to it. I'd rather than just put my Switch in its regular carrying case and have the grip out in the open in my bag if I was taking it somewhere else.

I really have to give that grip a try. I now have tried 3 different grips and they all leave something to be desired. This looks like something that is wide enough to not make your hands cramp. Gotta have to find a seller outside of the US, though.

Why? Satisfye ships worldwide. I don't think you'll find a seller other than Satisfye itself. It's a new product I went just out of crowdfunding.

Any low-footprint case suggestions that could snugly fit the system +dock and cables?

Everything I've seen branded as a switch-minded carrying case has been either too big with extra room that could fit a few controllers, or too small and made for just the system and a few games.

Oh, thanks a bunch. Just checked it and shipping is only 10 bucks, so I immediately ordered:)

Yah, this grip is a god send. Sooooooo much more comfortable than anything before it. I had the Orzy Comfort Grip before and it was just so so. This has the legitimate handles/wings on the controller which makes it so much more comfortable to hold. Also, I really do like how the right side is slightly offset in order to more comfortably reach the buttons and analog stick. For the price, this is an absolute no brainer.

 

Here's a pretty good review of it. And honestly now is the perfect time to order. Before it was brutal because we had to wait for all the crowdfunding and manufacturing to finish, but now they have all/most of their shipments completed and it's literally just "order and ship" now.

Shiiiiiiiiiiiit. Right after I get my grip, they release the f'n Limited Edition Holiday Bundle that I would have LOVED to have gotten instead with a red/black grip and the new SLIM case.

Plus, you can enter the discount code BACKER15 for 15% off the order (it's supposed to be a code for the backers but anyone can use it). Total with shipping ($10) comes out to $50. I'm super tempted to get this and maybe try to sell my original black grip. While I love the red/black colorway, I realized that it might not look so good with my purple joy-cons and my alternate pink/green joycons. I'll definitely order the new SLIM case when that becomes available for separate purchase. I didn't like the original big case because it was so... well big. This looks like the perfect dimension. If anyone hasn't placed an order and would like to, here is the chance for a nice deal. Apparently these will sell out soon.

Damn them. They should have told us earlier. Oh well, it's their way of making money I guess. Looks really nice.

I know, right? I don't mind the new colorway that much, but that Slim case is EXACTLY what I wanted in the original Elite bundle...

Besides Octopath Traveler and Xenoblade 2, what other Switch games would you recommend? Preferably Switch exclusives or new updated ports of classics.

 

Mainly enjoy jrpgs, hack-n-slash, and games like Devil May Cry and Resident Evil.

Zelda Breath of the Wild is legitimately one of the best games of all time and definitely in the past decade. It's the perfect amount of action swordplay, Rpg elements, exploration/quests, etc. Super Mario Odyssey is so god damn amazing as well and transcends platformer barriers. Bayonetta 3 is coming out for Switch which sounds like your cup of tea.

 

There are just tons of amazing games that I could keep listing but what I like most is the form factor. Portability that maintains the quality of a home console is so underrated. I've enjoyed so many more different kinds and types of games that I wouldn't have played before. Plus it is definitely perfect for Addie as well as the child library is great and it has tons of co-op options in all its biggest games (Mario Odyssey, Donkey Kong Country, etc). It's a good complement to the PS4's library. If there is a good BF deal, I'd pounce on one. I do know the Switch plus Mario Kart 8 bundle will be on sale for $300.

Wouldn't the Wii U version be preferred though?

Honestly haven't really played much of Mario related anything since SNES-era, but I've definitely been itching to try a new one, just wasn't sure where to begin lol. Enjoyed the 2d side-scrollers back in the day, but wasn't too crazy about the 3D N64 version.

While it does seem like it would be, I played the first when it came out and just didn't care for it. I can't explain it. So I never revisited the franchise. I didn't even check out the anime film that was made either.

Nintendo Switch is superior to the WiiU in terms of both hardware and peripherals with the joy-cons and its motion control. Honestly, I basically forgot that BotW is available for WiiU because no one owns one any more. It's essentially a Switch exclusive in my mind.

Wow, really? The Switch has better graphics than the Wii U?

You could argue the the Wii U emulator version of BoTW is preferred. You get quite the selection of graphical mods and a much higher resolution. Of course you'd need a somewhat beefy specked PC for it and lose the portability of the game.

Maybe but Cemu still needs a lot of development and most games don't run on it very well if at all. BotW isn't even listed at all on the compatibility page. But the Switch emulator is probably just as much undeveloped currently. So playing it on either a legitimate Wii U or Switch would pretty much be the only way to ensure proper play-through currently.

Yea, well, I tried it once out of curiosity. It does run and with the right amount of tweaking it runs quite well. Don't know anything about stability though.
